"Merchant payment and e-commerce managers at e-retailers, digital content providers, subscription services providers, and other business types are familiar with the many moving parts involved in converting sales into payments, and solutions providers have begun to step up their development efforts to tackle these problems as their customers expand into new markets and channels," David Fish, senior analyst at Mercator Advisory Group and author of the report comments. "However, with expansion comes an additional layer of complexity, and thus the vicious cycle persists."
